The Center for Applied Learning seeks to reinvigorate the civic mission of higher education and instill in students a sense of social responsibility and civic awareness. It is a pedagogical tool which encourages students to learn and explore issues vital to society, inside and outside the classroom. Students learn from engaging with communities by active participation. Faculty and staff guide students through this process through structured reflection and the integration of theory and practice.

Applied Learning can take place through partnership with charities, non-governmental organizations, statutory bodies, community agencies or organizations with a focus on social responsibility.

The Center is in the Student Services Center, Suite 111,Tower Building. Call 516.572.9775 for information and office hours.
